Published on 2019-02-12. Author : SpecialChem

Cardolite Amine Curing AgentCardolite has announced the launch of LITE 5262, an amine curing agent for 2-component epoxy coatings.

New LITE 5262

  • LITE 5262 is a low viscosity and very high solids phenalkamine
  • It provides excellent anticorrosion properties to various metal substrates including non-blasted surfaces
  • LITE 5262 enables low VOC coatings that can cure very fast even in cold weather and adverse conditions
  • This new curing agent is suitable for a variety of coatings in marine, protective and industrial applications

Cardolite phenalkamines are made through the Mannich reaction of cardanol, formaldehyde, and certain amines. They provide very fast cure even below zero temperatures, and excellent adhesion and corrosion protection even on immersed surfaces. Cardolite phenalkamides deliver corrosion protection and fast cure, but with longer pot life, better flexibility and UV resistance, and extended overcoat window.
